Oy. No matter how bad a system is, someone can always think of a way to make it worse. People are endlessly inventive.

Health care in this country, even with the reforms, is appalling. We still have the health insurance business mucking up everything imaginable. We seriously should have just adopted the Canadian system. Would have saved billions already simply in the legislative process.

Interesting.............. in our prison system, Inmates have access to medical & dental care, I believe on the tax payer's dime; while many law abiding US citizens have no health care coverage because it's beyond their financial means and their employer does not offer it.

That Nairobi hosipital looks to be doing the right thing, and I cannot imagine what that idiotic US NGO thinks it is going to achieve other than to either bankrupt the hospital, or force it to turn away women in the throes of labour, or both.

Everyone ouside free at the point fo delivery heathcare systems knows that having a baby in hospital costs money; you have several months to save up for these costs.
